Great location, everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

6 of us stayed for 3 nights, despite the floods a few months before, it wasn't really noticeable throughout the site.

Location is perfect, bus stop outside into Windermere, Ambleside and beyond and site is easy to find. Public footpaths almost across the road over to Wansfell and Ambleside.

Everything was clean and well maintained and very roomy even for 6 adults. Lodge is in a very quiet location and great to observe the bird life from the patio.

A new addition since our visit 2 years back is the Jacuzzi in the swimming pool area, great to relax in after a walk !

Great pub meal in The Elleray Hotel just inside Windermere, first went there in the 80s, some good restaurants and pubs in Ambleside to eat too.

Hope to return next March for a longer stay.
